Use CVE-2016-5238.

The scope of this CVE is the missing "dmalen > TI_BUFSZ" check in
the get_cmd function. The scope of this CVE does not include the
"At least the following patch is needed to ensure that ti_size always
matches ti_rptr/ti_wptr" discussion.

This is not yet available at
http://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=history;f=hw/scsi/esp.c but
that may be an expected place for a later update.

We typically can still assign a CVE ID with that response. We cannot
assign a CVE ID with a response of "there is no vulnerability but
I'm accepting the defense-in-depth code change." Admittedly this is
sometimes a difficult distinction.
